That is actually genius........PATENT that puppyOH, another DIY'er, Eh?
I had that problem, once, and I made a custom Filter cap-wrench to handle the problem. I must have a grip like a Gorilla, because when I hand tighten a filter, it can be a real B**** to get off.

I drilled three holes (one might be enough) in the side of the Filter Wrench and then tapped the filter wrench onto the filter, and then, using my Electric Screw Driver, I drove three 1/2" self tapping (sharpie) screws into the filter through the three holes I had previously drilled in the Filter Wrench. NO MORE SLIPPAGE!!! And the filter came right out, using a 9" extension on my 3/8" ratchet.
Like they say, "Necessity is the mother of invention". or, something like that.
Lol yea. DIY to save time, make sure its done right, and most important its a helleva lot cheaper! That was a great idea using the self tapping on the filter wrench! I ended up buying a universal filter wrench and it did not grip the filter well at all. So i took my old ol fashion oil wrench and squeezed two divets in the filter for the universal to grab hold of. Nearly broke my wrist when the blasted thing finally broke free lol.OH, another DIY'er, Eh?
I go 3K on the KIA because they are changing it and I have no Idea what they are actually putting in there. After the next one,which is free..It will be all me and Mobile 1 and 5k miles.......Unless she blows up......Which, she is in the range of problem motors.Well, we don't have state inspections here, in FL. None of that Nazi stuff. No state Income Tax either. And our kids are ALL in school too.
Well anyway I really don't know exactly what it cost because it's written right into the loan on the car.
But I do know that it covers almost everything on the car, even things that the KIA warranty does not cover.
They already replaced one tire that had side wall damage.
It includes 10 Oil changes, with tire rotations when needed. If I were one of those 6K oil change guys, I'd have free oil changes for 60,000 miles. But, since I change oil every 3k, I'll be out of free oil changes next spring.
That's OK too.
Every forum has one of you, you're entertaining for sure.I'm curious though....do you also cut all the labels out of all of your clothes?
